Nora is a good woman who has always fought for the wellbeing of her children. She is 51 years old and married. She has 5 children. Nora earns a living selling corn, tamales and other food. She decided to start her business because at one time she had a very sick child and she set out to help him improve. She has already been working for 6 years and the loan will help her to buy some steamers as the ones she has are old and burned. She will also buy more corn, charcoal, corn husks and dough to make tamales and other things. A dream Nora would like to fulfill is to have her own restaurant and have a lot of customers.

Additional Information

This is a Group Loan

In a group loan, each member of the group receives an individual loan but is part of a larger group of individuals. The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.

Kiva's Field Partners typically feature one borrower from a group. The loan description, sector, and other attributes for a group loan profile are determined by the featured borrower's loan. The other members of the group are not required to use their loans for the same purpose.
